Description

This combination of annual milo, millet and sunflower provides excellent first-year coverage for pheasants and migrating birds on well-drained, upland soils. It is also a companion crop for the warm season grasses and partridge pea, which create perennial food and shelter for all types of wildlife. Seed in full sun in the spring in tilled or disturbed soils.
Mix formulations are subject to change without notice depending on the availability of existing and new products. While the formula may change, the guiding philosophy and function of the mix will not.
